The Duchess of Cambridge is in Wiltshire today, visiting a Warminster charity which trains people to help those battling addiction.
Kate is a patron of Action on Addiction, and is visiting the charity's Centre for Addiction Treatment Studies. The charity offers degree courses accredited by the University of Bath.
The Duchess listened to a speech from Anna Elston, a newly graduated student, who gave a moving account of her journey from alcohol addiction (where she lost custody of her three young children) to gaining recovery and employment.
Kate was presented with a posy of flowers by Anna's three young boys, accompanied by her proud mother, Pauline.
Pupils from Minster School in Warminster lined the streets. Among those there to welcome Kate was die-hard royalist pensioner Terry Hutt, who previously spent weeks outside a London hospital awaiting the birth of Princess Charlotte.
